Package: emacs
Version: 24.3.50
X-Debbugs-CC: address@hidden

package-initialize is not being run because the code to detect
description files does

  (when (let ((subdir (expand-file-name subdir dir)))
          (and (file-directory-p subdir)
                (package--description-file subdir))))
    (throw 'package-dir-found t)))))))

but package--description-file does not return an absolute filename, so
file-exists-p fails.

Either this patch is needed,

    (throw 'package-dir-found t)))))))

or modifying package--description-file to return an absolute path.

I see.
